Okay, let me rephrase that: What's wrong with [sudo|su|impersonate other user] kill -15 PID? Just because you're in the same group, doesn't mean that you're allowed to touch his belongs –  Bobby Feb 18 '11 at 12:16

As Bobby already mentioned in comments, being in same group do not allow you to kill process.

Try running

sudo kill PID

where PID is process identifier of that process.

If you do not have sudo access (or root password), you are out of luck.
